Let the Madness Begin!

I cannot believe there are only 20 days of Christmas shopping left.
Guess I should start shopping!

Funny thing about it is, I DO NOT want to buy these kids anything. Now don't jump all over me and say it is Christmas and they deserve, need, want a bunch of crap. I know that, but seriously that crap is still all over my house from last year!

Titan Boy and I had a present discussion last night and he wants me to buy them all clothes. His theory is they will get pissed and start taking care of their stuff. Somehow, I seriously doubt it.

So what do you get kids who already  have too much and dont pick it up?

Here are some of the ideas I have.....Gift Certificates to the Container Store, a box of BIG BLAck trash bags, Yard Sale signs, Off Site Storage Containers......

What are your thoughts? Can you think of anything I need to add to the list?
Happy Friday!

PS The kids always get the goodstuff so I am thinking I will get that stuff for Titan boy and myself this year, whatcha think honey (he reads my blog and even comments!) wanna high powered nerf rifle with a million bullets? I want the Barbie Dream House with matching ferrari....hint hint

I know exactly what you mean. My boys' birthdays are in Sept, Oct, and Feb which are all fairly close to Christmas. They really do not need anything and sometimes it drives me crazy because they don't take care of things the way they should. And don't even get me started about the million lego pieces that are here there and everywhere. I totally feel your pain. ;)

My husband and I just recently had a similar discussion. We're cutting back this year on presents in hopes that the kiddies will really appreciate what they receive and take better care of it. I'm so tired of finding their video games out of the cases, not working anymore cuz their scratched or the Wii accessories just left on the floor to get stepped on. Lots of unneccessary broken things cuz their not put away or taken care of the right way.
